The development of the Architectural Glass and Metal Technician Certification Program has reached a milestone with the formation of a 27-member steering committee that met for the first time in a 2-hour teleconference on Thursday, June 15.

The program, a third-party, personnel certification initiative, is being developed by Administrative Management Systems, Inc. (AMS, Inc.) and is sponsored by the Finishing Trades Institute (FTI) International.

The committee is comprised of a balanced representation of industry experts from three major stakeholder segments: glaziers, glazing contractors, and the user community consisting of manufacturers, suppliers, architects, consultants and spec writers.

Assigned to five sub-committees, each handling separate facets of the program’s design, the members will jointly oversee the foundational stages of the program’s development.

At the meeting, they listened to a presentation that focused on a design concept, and development steps necessary for a world-class program that would meet the criteria for gaining ANSI accreditation in accordance with ISO/IEC 17024.

Among many of the committee’s immediate responsibilities will be to provide comprehensive feedback that will help establish the necessary fundamental knowledge- and performance-based competencies required of an Architectural Glass and Metal Technician, as well as help shape the program’s foundation, all in preparation for their second meeting on July 20 in Chicago, Il.

Development of the fundamental certification phase is estimated to be an 18- to 24-month project, with advanced certification endorsements in specific product categories and specialized skill requirements to follow.

AMS, Inc. provides independent, third-party certification services for fabricators, installers of fenestration products and nationally recognized associations.

Additionally, AMS, Inc. developed and operates the North American Contractor Certification Program (NACC), an initiative that provides certification recognition as a means of evaluating competency, business practices, and adherence to industry-accepted best practices for participating glazing contractors.

It is believed that the NACC Program may compliment the future AGMT Personnel Certification Program to provide assurance to the industry.

AMS, Inc. also provides services for certification programs including the Insulating Glass Certification Council (IGCC), the Safety Glazing Certification Council (SGCC), the Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) Hallmark, and NFRC certification for air, water, and structural, as well as thermal performance.
